Significantly updated, the latest edition of Counseling and Therapy Skills continues to be a tremendous text-and-DVD value for beginning and practicing therapists to develop a full range of essential skills. Unlike highly technical works, the emphasis here is on presenting material the reader can actually use and translate into behavior. A second emphasis is the three-pronged message that therapy demands active involvement, empathy must be evocative, and the therapist must work at the leading edge of the client's experiencing, thereby empowering the client to become the problem solver.

Award-winning educator and practitioner Dr. David Martin handles nuance and complexity with seasoned skill. His real-life examples cover beginning sessions, settings for therapy, ethics, various formats for therapy, cultural competence, and therapists' self-care. No-nonsense, clearly written analyses of theoretical approaches, including ways to reconcile "specific factors" and "common factors," provide a solid foundation for understanding the effectiveness of evocative empathy and how it can be used with other therapeutic practices.

The text is packaged with Observing Therapy, a DVD showing excerpts of the author conducting actual therapy sessions. This provocative learning tool demonstrates evocative empathy and can be used to practice responses to clients.
